Community Events



Once a month our lovely Lauren hosts a book club in partnership with Primrose Hill Books, usually on the last Monday of every month from 7pm.

For £8 you can enjoy a selection of delicious canapés and you can buy a copy of the new book. You’re also welcome to bring your Vown wine!

Feel free to contact us for more information by emailing us at [email protected]

We’re currently reading Love Nina by Nina Stibbe, featuring our very own Sam!

Previous reads have included:

I Saw A Man by Owen Sheers

Work Like Any Other by Virginia Reeves

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark



We occasionally host an evening with an established author, director or actor where you have the opportunity to hear them read and talk about their work followed by a question and answer session

Canapés are included in the cost of your ticket and you’re welcome to bring your own wine!

We’ve previously been lucky enough to welcome authors’ Francesca Segal (An Awkward Age) and Elizabeth Day (The Party) who read from their current books and opened the floor to questions and debate. A great evening was had by all!

Our next Sam’s Salon is with the director Nick Bagnall (The Everyman & Playhouse). Tickets are £10. Date TBC

  • Superb!

    Great friendly service and a fantastic Full English with the best black pudding I’ve ever tasted. Will definitely go back next time I’m in Primrose Hill!

  • Not your average cafe

    Popped in after a walk up the hill. Was lucky to get a seat as it was busy. The staff were friendly and attentive. I had the full English breakfast which was spot on! Just what I needed! It did take a little while but I can forgive that due to how busy it was. The jukebox is amazing, I was informed by staff that all the records had been selected by the one and only Robert Plant. Need I say more! I’ll definitely be going back…but this time for some Kedgeree.
